Lester Kryvett , 55 years old , professionally known as Vernon the Ventriloquist , has been blind for three years , but he is at the present moment doing his old vaudeville act on the Keith southern time . Speaking of his accomplishment the Cincinnati TimesStar says : Sitting in the audience at the Palace Theater this week , one would hardly suspect that Vernon is totally blind .

Vernon is a victim of the influenza epidemic which swept the country three years ago . It had him off the track for eighteen months . He awoke one ...

< VAUDEVILLE MEMORIES [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 11 March 1921
&lt; VAUDEVILLE MEMORIES By BERT LEVY No . 4—EVA TANGUAY Here is a snapshot taken in front of the State Capitol at Madison , Wis ., of the effervescent Eva and her pet Boston bull . It has been my privilege to appear on the same bill with Eva many , many times during the last few years , and I have had the opportunity of knowing her and studying her thoroughly , and all I can say is that Miss Tanguay Is the victim of her own craving for perfection . In the theatre , Eva Tanguay is obsessed with the one Idea—and that Is to . give the public the best that Is in her . She Is willing to sacrifice health , peace of mind and everything else to make good with her public . In the theatre Eva will exact the last ounce of effort and attention from everybody connected with the theatre in order to put her act over , but , outside the theatre , she will give her very soul away if It would make anybody happy . When her day s work is done and she . has relaxed somewhat after the efforts of...
